I managed to pack up the three kids AND all of our “stuff” early Friday morning and take a drive down to the Cape to see Mom and Pat. I packed the necessities (holy cow, it’s A LOT for 3 days!) and Chris followed us down after he got home from work.
Stopped for gas at Stop N Shop. Sometimes we get dirty looks and finger taps and grunts from the people waiting behind us at the pump-the Traverse has a big tank! Bigger than you all might think! Thank goodness I didn’t need to fill ‘er up, because the guy behind me was mad. Especially when he saw me snapping photos. Owen WAS crying though, and I had to settle him down and re-administer the binky a few times, for goodness sake! Although I run into quite a few terrific ones, some people still suck! We made it down to E. Falmouth in less than an hour!
We finally made it on the beach! Pat and I took the bigger kids to Old Silver around sunset on Friday night. This was Aidan’s first time on the beach since he was an infant, since last summer pretty much sucked weather-wise. He loved it. We did some digging and returned home to meet Daddy, who also made it down in record time!
On Saturday morning, we hit Old Silver again. We were on the beach by 9:20 or so, and stayed about 3 hours. PERFECT beach day. It was sunny, breezy and warm. Not too muggy or hot for my little Owen, who also got to hit the beach! We were pretty darn proud of ourselves for pulling it off with all of our stuff and a six week old!
Aidan was sooo cute, as usual. He came up from digging on the shore for a snack and said, “I don’t feel very well….” He didn’t like being wet. He said, “I want to go back to Cape Cod now.” Hilarious. The kids had a blast. And boy, did it feel good to finally have my toesies in the sand!
